  • "We had a lovey stay at Saint Pancras Cottage."

    It was cosy and fire wood left for a fire. There was an Aga and a normal oven, 2 fridges, enough plates and cutlery and a good dishwasher. Our dog loved the garden as well as the kids. The snooker table was great fun although missing most of the pockets. The garden was beautiful but could do with a bit of weeding. The cottage was equipped with everything we needed and would love to go back. It is 'old style' but I did like it about the cottage, making it feel homely and more relaxed with the family and dog. There is nothing wrong with the cottage itself and well maintained. It was clean and beds very comfy. We also had loads to do in the local area. We only stayed for 4 nights but would have been happy to stay much longer. We loved it and would go back. Lovely host too, that was friendly and recommended some lovely places to eat and visit. Dunster Castle and Village is around the corner and so beautiful.

  • "At Pancras chapel we found very comfortable with a homely feel and very relaxing."

    The beds were very comfortable but personal I would prefer a firmer pillow. The kitchen had all we wanted. The garden grounds were lovely but needed a bit of TLC. Overall we had a lovely stay.

  • "We loved the cottage and the location."

    however, it was chilly especially at night and extra blankets (which were provided by the manager) but not by the owner were definitely needed. The Aga was a great comfort! Better garden furniture (not broken) would be good too. But generally speaking, we had a great time and would go back.

  • "The house looked really idealic from the pictures on the web site, so it was booked for xmas 2023."

    We arrived for our stay and the garden was very overgrown and paths very spillery. We entered the house and found it smaller than the pictures portrayed but cosy. We were informed on arrival that the wood burner in the dinning room could not be used due to a bees nest which was disappointing and has been there since the summer. Within a couple of days we started finding bees and wasps when the house was warm in the dinning room and on the table, in the kitchen and in the lounge, which i have to say was a little bit uncomfortable. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay but for the money we paid i think we should have been informed about the bees nest and also the few problems giving us an option to change our booking. We had an issue with the central heating which the key holder had to come and fix and made us aware that the owner new of the heating problem. If this property had a bit of an overall it would be lovely.

  • "Very happy with the cottage, the garden could have been lovely but needs alot of maintenance."

    Would love to come back as loved the area and the cottage but some worked would be needed to the garden. Also with a few small amendments could be made fully dog enclosed. As there are areas on the road side that they can escape.

  • "Fantastic characterful cottage, we really loved our stay atvSt Pancras Chapel."

    We had good weather and spent a lot of time in the garden, the dogs loved it and the perimeter is very secure so you can relax whilst the dogs explore. The cottage is very clean and well equipped with hotel quality bedding and towels. Lots of places to visit locally, we enjoyed Dubster Castle. We enjoyed cooking on the aga. Lots of books and games are available. A freezer would make this cottage perfect. We would definitely stay again.

  • "We really appreciated staying at the chapel the crucial thing to us was being able to bring our dogs with us for this the property was excellent."

    We loved the garden which is overgrown but still attractive.. We found the kitchen quite difficult to negotiate the large table in the centre making it hard to access the cooker and with a number of people in the kitchen you find yourself edging sideways. A narrower table would really help. Double bedrooms very comfortable For those sleeping in the twin room there is a noise like a plane taking off when the boiler kicks in or if someone is having a shower.. Still a charming place, very clean just a bit of maintenance required

  • "A truly lovely property and sumptuous beds, linen and towels, the quality was really appreciated."

    Our dogs loved the enormous garden, which was very secure (as I did a perimeter check just to make sure) so they could run and play to their hearts content. Nicely isolated but near enough to the main road for all the local attractions and shops, Dunster Castle is a particularly lovely place to visit and some lovely walks with or without your fur babies. All in all I would highly recommend St. Pancras Chapel and really hope we will be able to return in the future.

    Clean crisp linen and comfortable beds await you. A perfect retreat for a summer holiday with nearby beaches or to cosy up to the log fire in Autumn or Winter. Highly recommended

  • "St Pancras chapel is a very special place- book it if you can!"

    Tucked away, full of history but also so cosy and comfortable. After a good nights sleep each night on comfy beds and luscious sheets, we awoke to birdsong, and each morning stepped out into the wondrous, old fashioned garden, watered by a stream, fed by a holy wellspring. The Aga kept us warm as did the woodburner, and we had a great time cooking and baking in the well equipped and home-like kitchen. The dining room was requisitioned as a study for exams revision but we also enjoyed a game of pool one evening. Our dog loved the place too! The weather outside wasn't great, which was all the excuse we needed to cosy up indoors. Outdoors we loved Watchet, Dunster, fossil hunting quantoxhead to kilve, and other walks at blue anchor bay, Dunkery, and Fyne court. We ate at the Rest And BeThankful at wheddon cross- highly recommended- also the cafe and shop in Roadwater.

  • "We loved our stay here!"

    The cottage and gardens had a quaint and rustic feel and was great to relax in. This is when we weren’t going to nearby beaches, forests and villages for our long walks and delicious meals. Would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to take in what Somerset as to offer.

  • "We enjoyed a wonderful stay in the chapel."

    Our only suggestion is for some outside lights as it was very dark letting dogs out early morning / last thing at night. The chapel was delightful and very comfortable.

The property

Williton 3 miles.

Resting on the outskirts of Washford near Williton, Somerset is this charming chapel conversion, Saint Pacras Chapel.

This 13th-century, stone chapel rests amidst stunning gardens on the edges of the Exmoor National Park, and enjoys original features throughout, including stained-glass windows and exposed beams, making for a wonderful base for a family of six's adventure in this part of Somerset.

Off-road parking for up to four vehicles welcomes you on arrival, so you can park up and settle in with ease.

Make your way through the original medieval door, before continuing to the sitting room, a space packed with character, thanks to its stained-glass windows and inglenook fireplace; grab a seat on one of the sofas and stretch out whilst the TV entertains you and the flames of the woodburning stove warm you.

When you're feeling peckish, continue to the kitchen/diner, a space enjoying charming wooden cabinetry beholding a range of appliances, including an AGA range; the chef of the group can rustle up tasty dishes here, to be enjoyed at the dining table.

Next door, another kitchen space can be found, with laundry facilities, an electric cooker and an extra fridge.

Dinners can also be savoured in the delightful dining room, another space enjoying the warmth of a woodburning stove, whilst offering a table that doubles up as a pool table, ideal for post-dinner entertainment!

At the end of the day, climb the stairs to find two of the three lovely bedrooms, a king-size and a double, both of which enjoy wooden furnishings and rest close to the family bathroom and a shower room.

Another set of stairs from the ground floor take you to a well-presented twin room, ideal for the little ones or those after a little privacy!

Make the most of the property's stunning gardens, where you can stroll along the stream and across the lawns, serve up grilled delights from the barbecue, to be enjoyed in the summer house, and even play a game of croquet!

Washford, a fantastic village, rests nearby and offers access to two welcoming pubs, as well as the historic delight of Cleeve Abbey and the fascinating Tropiquaria Wildlife Park.

Continue to Williton, another wonderful village, where the West Somerset Railway can be found, along with all your amenities in one handy setting; steam trains ply the route of the West Somerset Railway, making this property the ideal choice for railway enthusiasts!

Travel to Watchet for an idyllic day on the coast, with the Watchet Boat Museum, access to Doniford Beach and Watchet Fish and Chips taking centre stage.

Continue along the South West Coastal Path to find Minehead, or travel into Exmoor National Park to find a range of things to do, including birdwatching in the Dunkery & Horner Wood National Nature Reserve, and hiking along the Tall Trees Trail; alternatively, you can visit the Quantock Hills AONB for even more outdoor activities.
